Your Next Stamp new release!

Hello there! Karen thought it would be fun to toss
out a surprise new release to keep everyone on their toes.
Fun right!?!

I was able to play around with two new sets that are
two things I am very passionate about :

I love riding my bike it's great to get out on the highway 
and pedal away my stress and worries.
Speaking of stress I decided to fussy cut the wheels on this
image ay vey! 
I love the outcome but I am certain there will not
be a repeat performance if this....EVER!
I love the little butterfly and flowers that come in this set
and it was fun creating a background with them. 
The sentiment is from last months release
Scene Sentiments which has been my 
go to ever since I received them.
wink wink hint hint

I love reading as of late which is a great thing being
a librarian and all.  I swear when I applied for the job
I had to confessed to rarely reading at all beyond 
children's literature to my kids!

This creation is for my daughter 
(I know it looks masculine but she'll like it none-the-less!)
who lives with her nose in a book.
At her school, they utilize a reading
incentive program called Accelerated Reader.
She came in 5th place over this year in her school but didn't win 
the coveted placard. ( A very sad moment in the history of Isabelle) 
This summer she is on a full mission to have 15-20 books read
by August earning her over 200 points.
This reading journal will help her keep track
of the books she's read along with other information
for testing purposes. 
Good Luck Iskers, you can do it!

If you want to see more new releases be sure to stop be the
